Whalers Cove Kauai – Things To Do

by admin on July 23, 2010

Whalers Cove resort on Kauai has more to boast than just spectacular grounds. Poipu has long been a tourist’s mecca on Kauai. Often sunny while the rest of the island is cloudy, vacationers seek out the warm, friendly vibe of Kauai’s south side. While there have always been shops and restaurants to please most visitors, the new Kukui’ula Village is developing into a great destination shopping, dinning, and cultural center.

The new Village center is within walking distance from Whalers Cove and has plenty to offer guests. You can enjoy fine dinning at restaurants like Merriman’s or Josselin Tapas Bar & Grill or grab a quick bite at Bubba Burgers or Dude Dogs. There are plenty of shops for the whole family, art galleries to wander through and plenty of on-site events scheduled on a regular basis.

Recently some of the Koloa Plantation festivities took place at Kukui’ula Village. The annual festival celebrates the rich plantation heritage that used to account for the predominant economic force and cultural identity of Koloa and the entire chain of Hawaiian islands. Sunset Cinema, which is a traveling outdoor Kauai movie theater, setup and screened movies that focused on the last sugar cane haul that took place in 2009.

Of course Whalers Cove sells itself easily on its own merits: the coastal views, large lanais, manicured grounds, heated oceanfront pool among others. Now, with the developing center of Kukui’ula, guests have one more reason to be drawn to these idyllic digs.
